Founded in 1918, BADA (The British Antique Dealers’ Association) is the leading trade association for the fine art, design and antiques community.

Our members are carefully vetted and selected for their wealth of experience, professional integrity, and the exceptional quality and craftsmanship of their stock.

Many BADA members are internationally recognised for their expertise and unparalleled knowledge in their chosen field of speciality.

The BADA standard

BADA members adhere to a vigorously enforced code as laid down in the association's Bye-laws. After a thorough election procedure dealers continue to have their membership renewed and confirmed annually.

It is for this reason that a member of the public can have confidence when buying from, or selling to, a member of BADA.

There are approximately three hundred and fifty dealers, galleries and shops worldwide who have met the very high standards that BADA demands. Details of our members can be found using our Dealer search facility.
